Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!

She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

Private Ballet Teacher

Hi students! I am a professional ballet/Broadway dancer with 25+ years of training and experience. I have taught at Ballet Academy East (nationally recognized for its well crafted syllabus and meticulous technique) in both the young children's pre-ballet program and the Pre-Professional Graded Level. As a student, I have attended San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, American Ballet Theater in NYC, and Central PA Youth Ballet before working on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera and with The Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center.

With my lessons we can work on improving strength/technique, preparing for an audition, or coaching through a variation. Not only will you gain strength and technique, but also insight into the industry from a seasoned professional. You will also leave with exercises you can practice at home for rapid improvement.

*For adults and older children/teens, studio space will be rented and subject to availability and additional fees. Contact as soon

Janice is one of the best! Her extensive dance background along with her yoga studies make her such a well rounded teacher. Her class was a perfect balance of strength and stretching and her adjustments to my form were very much appreciated. In my short time taking with her I've already noticed big changes in my body and I'm excited to continue my studies with her. Janice is a lovely person, true professional, and has the patience to work with people at all levels. I'm very thankful to have found her and highly recommend her to all!

Private Ballet Teacher

I am a professional ballet dancer and I love to help students achieve "clean" un-stylized classical technique, whether they hope to gain admittance into top ballet schools, summer programs or audition for companies. I began training at age 3 and have experience with small and large schools. For my high school years, I trained with American Ballet Theatre's JKO School, where I received ABT certification to teach Levels Pre-Ballet - 3, then did my post secondary training with Canada's National Ballet School in Toronto. Since graduating, I have danced with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens in Montreal and Semperoper Ballett in Dresden, Germany. I would be more than happy to share tips and encourage any age student as they reach for their individual goals.

About Isabelle

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I love sharing the beautiful classical art of ballet with young students! I like to keep class fun while gently helping students retain habits that encourage a language of clean classical technique through proper form, allowing them to work towards their creative potential. I received my early training starting at 2 1/2 in my hometown of Philadelphia and moved to New York after receiving an invitation to study with the JKO School at age 16. I furthered my training after graduation in Toronto with Canada's National Ballet School. SInce then I have danced professionally in Canada, Germany and Denmark. I am currently pursuing my interest in artistic collaborations with contemporary visual artists. When not dancing or working on photography and video projects, I enjoy sewing and design

ing pieces for a small clothing line.

Isabelle was so patient with me and really broke down the steps. She also helped me understand which muscles to strengthen (and how) so I feel like I can understand how to get to where I want to be. Highly recommend!

Private Ballet Teacher

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!

Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.

My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. ...

About Meg

Hi there! My name is Meg and I want to help you gain confidence, get in shape, try something new, or even work on something you’ve been practicing for years! I’m here to help you reach your goals and have fun doing so!

I grew up in North Carolina and began ballet when I was three and theatre a few years later. I studied at the Raleigh City Ballet and did pre-professional programs with Carolina Ballet and the University of NC School of the Arts.

Currently I am a teacher, actor, and professional dancer with 10 years of teaching and industry experience. I have a versatile background in numerous styles of dance, acting, fitness, modeling and theatre.

I fell in love with performing at a very young age and haven’t stopped since; one of my greatest passions is sharing that love with others!

I work with all ages and levels from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts! My lessons are challenging, creative, and lots of fun!

"Jennifer is a fantastic ballet teacher for all ages and levels! She is extremely knowledgeable and has experience both as a teacher and as a dancer. Jenni
fer is excellent at teaching strong and solid ballet technique, while keeping the class energy light, fun, engaging, and encouraging. In addition to being an incredible teacher, Jennifer is also a wonderful person. She's genuinely awesome all around, and anyone would be lucky to have her as their ballet teacher!"

Yitong
"Elizabeth is very attentive of your individual needs. I take her class when I feel I hit enough walls from the public classes I'm taking and need someone
experienced to guide me personally and answer all the confusions I have. She helped me find my proper hip move and body alignment for my pirouette and also helped me get started on pointe work. I'm now accessed and approved by the Joffery ballet school teacher to join its beginner pointe class, which I'm really excited about."

Janice
"Sara was very nice and went over basic steps and postures thoroughly, correcting mine. I learned some basics I didn't pick up for years of ballet classes
and truly appreciate her being so thoughtful and attentive to the details. I also brought questions on certain steps I couldn't master. Sara patiently showed how to start the steps and how to do them better. I already look forward to my second lesson with Sara!"
...
Kati
"I have trained ballet at different studios and with different teaches for the past few years, until I finally met Elizabeth. She is an amazing dancer, wit
h plenty of knowledge and experience.

I truly enjoy her classes, which are very demanding, fun and helpful. Elizabeth is an incredible hands-on teacher, who breaks down techniques and movements in a very granular and understandable way.

Elizabeth helped me discover things about my body and ballet techniques in a way that no other teacher has done in the past.

After only a few classes with her, I was able to finally understand and perform techniques that had always appeared difficult to me, such as executing double pirouettes. Now I can finally do it and I’m thrilled about it!

I cannot express all my gratitude to Elizabeth. I highly recommend her classes if you are really interested in mastering the fundamentals of ballet."
...
Angela
"Ferlyn was patient, accessible, friendly, and fun. I really loved her music selection, too."
Nana
"We (my grand daughter and I ) did not know what to expect. I did try to prepare by having the room and computer ready and by making notes about what G nee
ded to review. Sara is an excellent teacher and started with a warm up that included feet. G is a full time gymnast and her Achilles had been tight and sore and this was very beneficial. Sara had G doing basic barre work, then she worked on her musicality, progressions and turns. It provided G with the correction and attention that she cannot receive in her regular ballet class and best of all we were able to stay home. It is great for my grand daughter's situation because she does not have to commute one more time in the week. Visually Sara made corrections as G was doing her movement, that is a testament to Sara's professionalism, expertise and training. It also shows that even a technology deficient grandmother can make this work."
...
Marc
"Benita understands how to teach passion and expression to others. She has the unique talent not only as a dancer herself but as a teacher to bring than on
to her students. Very few teachers can do that.
To quote from Mozart in the jungle.
She dances/teaches with the blood."
